French Puffs

These French puffs, rolled in cinnamon sugar, are a favorite from my childhood. Our neighbor, Aunt Joanie, was like a second mom, and this was a recipe she made for us often. They are a mix between a donut and a muffin; like a soft snickerdoodle cake-donut but better!

I’ve adapted this recipe to work with our pancake mix. I promise you these puffs are a cute as-can-be and are perfect sweet treat! I’ll be sharing with my newest neighbor. So treat yourself to a French Puff.
